Zaun Group companies have been appointed to the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) approved supplier and installer list of fencing materials.
The MoJ published a framework contract for the supply of fencing materials on 2 June inviting tenders and requests to participate.
It has now concluded its selection process, including financial audits and sample installations for inspection and testing by MoJ personnel.
Both Zaun Limited and Binns Fencing have been appointed to the framework as approved suppliers of permanent and temporary galvanised steel fence posts and welded steel fence mesh, while Binns is also an approved installer.
The approvals apply to MoJ prison fencing throughout the UK, including those in Northern Ireland.
Electric fence first for UAE military base
Zaun has also installed a ‘first of its kind’ electric fence in the United Arab Emirates.
The Crown Prince wanted an electric fence to protect a military base in Abu Dhabi.
Electric fencing can provide security and protection of perimeters around key strategic and infrastructure sites. The installation of an electric fence combined with a secure fencing system creates a very powerful psychological and physical barrier for would-be trespassers and criminals to overcome. Electric fences offer high impact resistance and an effective deterrent.
Zaun electric fencing has been designed to give trespassers a shock, providing a remarkably high level of boundary and perimeter security.
Zaun first set up an office in the UAE in the Emirates Tower in Dubai in 2012 and has now established a company in the Free Trade Zone.
